CERES, Calif., January 10, 2018 – Western Dental & Orthodontics, one of the nation’s leaders in accessible, affordable oral healthcare, today announced it has expanded its dental office in Ceres by adding a second building for pedodontic and orthodontic practices located at 1524 Richland Avenue.
The new space, located just east of the Ceres Plaza Shopping Center, is adjacent to the Arco station and shares a parking lot with its original location. Western Dental will continue to treat patients 12 years of age and older at the original location.
Western Dental’s new office houses an expanded orthodontics bay with ten new operatories, new state-of-the-art digital equipment and an experienced bilingual staff. With the two offices, patients now have increased access to comprehensive services including general dentistry, orthodontics, oral hygiene services and specialty dentistry.
In addition to accepting uninsured and privately insured patients, Western Dental welcomes patients covered by the Medi-Cal Dental program (known as Denti-Cal) at this location and all of its 190 California offices. Western Dental is the leading provider of services to the Denti-Cal program, which provides health care benefits for more than 13 million low-income individuals and families in California. Western Dental is committed to continuing to partner with the State to help improve the program.
“Our orthodontics practice was bursting at the seams,” said Dr. Iyad Altwal, Managing Dentist. “Now we’ll be able to continue providing our patients with comprehensive care in a beautiful, newly designed space. We’re also excited to provide patients in Ceres with access to quality pediatric care. This is all part of our approach to providing a complete Dental Home for our patients, and meeting their dental needs throughout their lifetime.”
The office is open weekdays from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. and Saturdays from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Western Dental is planning a grand opening of its expanded office that will be open to the public.
